    Default Move backup to tape library

    Hi guys,

    i've made some modification to the backup schedule, here are the schedule

    Current Schedule:

    i 0 1 * * 0-5 -z
    f 0 1 * * 6 -z -a all
    d 7d 0 0 * * *


    so, incremental backup every day at 1am with zipped attachment, full every saturday a 1am for all account and zipped attachment and delete backup older than 7 days, right?

    now.. i need to keep the backup not only on disk but also on tape to avoid any others problems. Now, the backup are very small files so i don't want to copy the directory tree in this mode. There is a possibiliti to tar a specific backup and after, transfer on the tape?

    Thanks

    the backups are all stored in /opt/zimbra/backup/sessions in directories like

    full-datestamp
    incr-datestamp

    so you could create tar files out of these. zimbra doesn't provide this capabiliy though.

    It would help very much if you were to let us know which version of ZCS you are running by updating your profile with the output from
    Code:
    su - zimbra
    zmcontrol -v
